Morning Music Notes – Dr. Phil and the Ruff Ryder Crew
In the latest version of BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, we see California sister trio (a phrase I wish I wrote more often) HAIM cover everyone’s favourite singer, the Twerkacyrus Rex herself – Miley Cyrus.

Morning Music Notes
Does playing Glastonbury help the sales of artists? If you said yes, you win (nothing). How much of an impact you ask? Glastonbury acts saw a rise of 536% in sales on Amazon’s UK site. Arctic Monkeys saw a sales increase of 1795% for their third album, Humbug. Of course percentages can be misleading, but fun to look at (like stupid but pretty girls) (via Gigwise)
Apple released iOS 7 recently. Surely, this will solve the horrific Apple Maps, right? Apparently not, as the Apple Maps directions to the Fairbanks Airport in Alaska suggest that you DRIVE ON THE RUNWAY! For a trip down memory lane (and to disastrous Apple Maps locations), check out the Apple Maps gallery of disaster. (via Crave)
First, Eminem had Shady Records. Now, he has Shady Films – a venture with LOUD channel and Electus. It sort of sounds like a name an adult film company would use, but rest assured it is not (via Pigeons and Planes)
And just because – watch Dr. Phil interview DMX! Not sure who set this up. “Your talent is as intact now as it was 10 years ago, so why aren’t you making $13 million a year still?”
